Book Journey. This is a great networking opportunity for others and to find more books to read. We all know we need help with that! Well probably not, but I do find that I can find bloggers with similar reading interests if I participate.
This week I'm reading:
Janet Evanovich and Lee
Goldberg have teamed up for a dynamic new series featuring an FBI agent
who’s on the hunt—and a master con artist who’s enjoying the chase. The
con is on in this eBook original short story that’s a triumphant prequel
to The Heist.
FBI special agent Kate O’Hare has made it her
mission to nail international con artist Nicolas Fox. When she discovers
his plot to plunder a venture capitalist’s twentieth-story Chicago
penthouse of all its cash and treasures at the same time that the
self-proclaimed “King of Hostile Takeovers” is getting married, Kate is
85 percent—okay maybe 92 percent—sure that she’s finally going to bag
Problem is, first Kate has to convince her boss,
building security, and maybe even herself, that wedding planner Merrill
Stubing is actually Nicolas Fox. Second, she has to figure out how to
corner and capture him without disrupting the event of the year. And
third, what’s going to happen once O’Hare finally gets her hands on Fox?
It’s going take a pro to catch a con before the fireworks over Lake
Michigan go off.
FBI Special Agent Kate
O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job,
chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind
bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think
she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate
has made quite a name for herself for the past five years, the only name
she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox—an international crook she wants in
more ways than one.
Audacious, handsome, and dangerously
charming, Nicolas Fox is a natural con man, notorious for running
elaborate scams on very high-profile people. At first he did it for the
money. Now he does it for the thrill. He knows that the FBI has been hot
on his trail—particularly Kate O’Hare, who has been watching his every
move. For Nick, there’s no greater rush than being pursued by a
beautiful woman . . . even one who aims to lock him up. But just when it
seems that Nicolas Fox has been captured for good, he pulls off his
greatest con of all: he convinces the FBI to offer him a job, working
side by side with Special Agent Kate O’Hare.
Problem is, teaming
up to stop a corrupt investment banker who’s hiding on a private island
in Indonesia is going to test O’Hare’s patience and Fox’s skill. Not to
mention the skills of their ragtag team made up of flamboyant actors,
wanted wheelmen, and Kate’s dad. High-speed chases, pirates, and
Toblerone bars are all in a day’s work . . . if O’Hare and Fox don’t
kill each other first.
Excited to check out a new series by Janet Evanovich. And I learned a thing or two, Lee Goldberg is the author of The Monk series which I would also like to read and see if I would enjoy the series.
